The Shimano Stradic FK Spinning Reels were designed with technical inshore anglers in mind, who demand toughness and durability in their spinning reels. Building upon the revolutionary series of spinning reels that inshore and freshwater anglers alike have come to love with the Stradic series of spinning reels, the FK leverages Hagane gearing and body for the ultimate cranking power and unmatched rigidity on top of other top Shimano technologies such as X-Ship. Whether you are targeting striped bass in the northeast or redfish, speckled trout, snook and more in the southeast, you will find the perfectly sized Stradic FK Spinning Reel to match your application.



Shimano Technology Found In Shimano Stradic FK Spinning Reels :
  • Hagane Gear - Boasting amazing strength and durability, Hagane Gear is a process in which the gearing is calculated in minute detail and cold forged instead of being cut. This application of state-of-the-art technologies gives the angler reel smoothness from the first use through years of enjoyment.
  • Hagane Body - A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to itís stiffness and impact resistance. The result? An anglerís actions are more efficiently transformed into cranking power. Itís efficiency through strength.
  • X-Ship - By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear remains in precise alignment with the drive gear and stays in the same position under even the heaviest of loads. This eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.
  • S A-RB Bearings - These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimanoís A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearingís rotation.
  • Aero Wrap II - Utilizing a patented worm gear design, this two-speed oscillation system lays the line onto the spool in a X pattern that reduces line-on-line friction and helps to increase casting distance.
  • Aluminum Cold Forged Spool - Provides increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
  • Propulsion Line Management System - The most obvious component of this system is the Propulsion spool lip design, which has been proven through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations to provide longer casts while preventing backlashes and wind knots.
  • Super Stopper - Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way stainless steel roller bearing to eliminate back-play in the reel and provide the angler with instant power when setting the hook.


Hagane Body: Metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms your actions directly into cranking power.
X-Ship: Provides greater power transmission efficiency through the use of large precision cut gears with increased bearing support
Aero Wrap II: is a worm gear oscillation system with specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides great uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast shape and thickness of the aluminum rotor creates high rigidity that results in more fish fihgting power. Increased mass of this rotor generates more inertia resulting in easier fishing of heavy jigs and high resistance lures

Best reel in the world
I used Penn reels for 50 years but their quality has gone to hell. A co-worker told me about Stradic, I bought the 3000 and its the best reef I’ve ever had. In 6 years no wind knots, no bail or mechanical problems, nothing and it gets used hard. I’ll never buy anything but Stradic from now on.

I love this reel!
I fish this reel in saltwater for inshore species. The reel is very tough, extremely smooth and the drag works like a charm. I spooled it with 20 lb test braid and it casts very well. You can't go wrong with this one!

stratic4000 fk vs stradic ci4 4000....... for stripers, blues and albies?? and what would you recommend for a rod? I was thinking a 7' M or MH, fast action.... throwing soft plastics and 5/8 or 7/8 epoxies etc
1 Answers
The Shimano Stradic ci4+ 4000 is a better built reel then the stradic 4000 it can and will handle harder fighting fish with the stradic fk your going to get a larger spool capacity.

Should I get the 4000 or 5000 to put on a 7foot heavy stcoix Avid inshore? Using it for stripers
1 Answers
Either one pairs well with that rod. I would decide based on the fishing you are doing and what you are targeting. The 5000 holds a bit more line capacity than the 4000. If you prefer a power handle the 5000 comes with it, the 4000 does not have a power handle.

I recently purchased a Stradic 4000 XG reel. How does this differ from the FK model and can it be used for saltwater fishing?
1 Answers
With the CI4 construction body and having a max drag of 24 compared to the FK at 20 lb makes this reel in my opinion a better reel. The CI4 series reels are also lighter reels.

Yes you can. In the Stradic a 2500 size and a C3000 size utilize the same reel body, the C3000 size spool simply has a larger line capacity.
